yup, here it is

this is fixed now (and much more)

Area: database\data aware controls\tdblookupcombobox
Reference Number: 64761

Status: Fixed in Delphi 5
Date Reported: 7/13/99

Severity: Serious

Type: Crash


IntelliMouse wheel movement puts
DBLookupComboBox in an infinite loop.

The application has to be killed to terminate.

Th64is only occurs with the newest (2.2d) driver,
2.1 works fine.
